We all know Saratoga Springs is a beautiful place to live, with its bustling downtown, genuine people and historic beauty. Recently, Saratoga was recognized for another reason - a new study from SmartAsset ranked the "10 Best Places to Retire in New York," and Saratoga not only made the cut, but actually ranked in at 2nd place! 
As the winter season chills our bones and makes us want to stay inside all day, there really is only one solution to our winter blues: food. As a resident of Saratoga, I understand the amazingness that is Saratoga dining - with the variety, the quality and the service being nothing but top notch.
